Provident Metals is delighted to offer the second of MrThe’s hobo nickel designs, The Train 1 oz Silver Proof Round. These proof-like hobo nickels are struck by the Osborne Mint, consist of one troy ounce of .999 fine silver, and come with a Certificate of Authenticity.

The hobo nickel is a cultural art form in which the design of small-denomination coins is modified. The modification of coinage dates to Colonial America in the 1750s, but became popular in the early 20th century with the introduction of Fraser's Buffalo Nickel. Using modern tools with classical technique, MrThe has created five hobo nickel designs on Buffalo 1 oz Silver Rounds. Each design is available as a 1 oz proof-like round, 1 oz antiqued round, and 5 oz antiqued round.

The obverse of The Train features a steam engine, the hobos' preferred method of transportation. Delicately sculpted steam pours from the smokestack and wheels as the train thunders down the tracks. A rustic railroad tie design around the rim and the inscriptions “LIBERTY”, and “1913” complete the design.

The reverse design of The Train 1 oz Silver Hobo Nickel depicts the conventional hobo. His bag is created from the buffalo's hump, and his stick from the line above the denomination. The reverse also features the inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”, and “FIVE CENTS”.

These charming silver coins are also edge marked with an individual number.

These 1 oz silver rounds were designed by Paolo Curcio, also known as MrThe. MrThe is a classically trained artist that studied at the Academy of Fine Arts. MrThe creates some of the most amazing and unique hobo nickels in his studio in Spain. Celebrate this historic cultural art form, and add a hobo nickel 1 oz silver round to your collection of silver bullion.

Each 1 oz proof hobo nickel will ship in a plastic capsule in the same condition it is received from the Osborne Mint.

Each design has a limited mintage. Proof rounds have a limited mintage of 10,000, 1 oz and 5 oz antiqued rounds have a mintage of only 1,000.
